1/30/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 2:38-39 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off–for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

They wanted to know exactly what they need to do, so Peter presented them with explicit instructions, instructions that are relevant today. They were told to repent and be baptized. So many churches today leave out the baptism part. They claim it’s not necessary. They claim it’s outdated, a thing of the past. If we were to follow one person found in scripture, wouldn’t that be Jesus. His last command before going to be at the right hand of God was for His disciples to go into all the world baptizing, baptizing and teaching. Baptizing for their forgiveness and teaching them to obey. So why don’t we obey? To remove baptism from the equation is to refuse to obey the commands of Jesus, as well as His disciples, and for that we will have to give an answer as we stand before God in judgment.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see the need to follow Your Word in its exactness, not changing anything to fit into my ways or beliefs.
